The Role of Origin Stories With Regard to Villains
Provide an analysis of the role that origin stories of villains in various forms of fiction fill. Perhaps the story makes for an interesting insight into the motives behind an evildoer’s deeds (as in the case of the Psycho film franchise, for example), their relation to the respective hero (if any), or perhaps as a source of sympathy for the character. Supply in-depth descriptions of examples for each role.
